Martha Stewart, Newsweek, and NBC

What do all of the above have in common?

1. Newsweek faked a flattering picture of Martha Stewart on the cover.
2. Newsweek is owned by MSNBC.
3. NBC is promoting "a daytime TV show, a prime time apprentice TV show spin-off -- both with NBC/Universal," staring Martha Stewart.

It may be a bit far fetched - but it makes me sick none the less.

You read it here first, the connection that is - gooooo journalism!

Not at all far-fetched, unfortunately. And yeah, I read it here first. You're hot... on the trail!

Seriously though, there's increasingly little that MSNBC doesn't own ...

Brian said...

Not yet ... :)

General Electric owns MSNBC, in addition to Pax, USA, Bravo, Telemundo and a score of other production companies, distributors and such. Interestingly, they also own the Universal Theme Park; do you think Martha likes roller coasters?

wait a second here, anah... who do YOU work for?

by the way, I talked to a theater consultant, and the only book he pulled out, besides his own, was the one you suggest. he said "you should really get your hands on this book."
